Weddings at The Grove Redfield Estate
From the venue:
“Redfield Estate is an award-winning wedding and events venue located inside The Grove Nature Preserve, a 150+ acre National Historic Landmark. Rentals include the entire estate, featuring a vintage craftsman style home complete with dressing rooms and fireplace. Seasonally filled urns and fountains lend accent, along with a 30’ x 60’ covered-stone Pavilion (with fireplace), period lighting, a rustic gazebo tucked into the forest, a large meadow and pond.”
Redfield Estate is a wonderfully rustic and historic venue sure to satisfy your fairytale dreams! The lush garden and wonderful nature preserve create the most intimate and romantic backdrop for any soon-to-be-married couple. Guests love to take a stroll along the grounds, dotted with beautiful trees in the fall or decorated with lush flowers in the summer. The Venue is full of rustic charm and history, and the main house is preserved well with many original fixtures in place, exemplifying the craftsmanship and beauty of its time.
What Couples are Saying:
“We highly recommend Redfield Estate at the Grove (in Glenview IL) as a wedding and reception venue, for several reasons. (1) The site is beautiful. The stately house, pavilion, gazebo, and surrounding grounds invite leisurely walks, conversation, and celebration. (2) The staff, starting with manager Deborah Rabeor, but extending to every employee we met, is very responsive and helpful. On Sunday September 11, for instance, when our daughter was married at Redfield, the Chicago area was hit with an all-day, record-setting downpour. Deborah “just put on my jeans,” as she told us, and came to the venue on her day off, to make sure everything was proceeding as normally as possible. (3) The price is right. The “bang for your buck” travels a long way at Redfield, compared with other venues. We felt our money was well-spent. (4) The list of Redfield’s recommended vendors – in particular, floristry and catering – met and even exceeded our expectations. We used Bella Rue (catering), Toast & Jam (DJ), Oak Mill Bakery (cake), and Hlavacek (florist). In sum, we are certain you will be pleased with Redfield Estate and its talented, hardworking staff.” – Paul N
“The Grove Redfield Estate is a beautiful, photogenic venue. The rental includes the pavilion where we were married in front of the fireplace. Also included are the gazebo, and the Redfield Estate itself, where we hosted our reception. The Redfield Estate had just been refreshed, and looked amazing. On the day of the event, every room of the Redfield Estate was staged and ready for guests. We had our own room upstairs to get ready in, with a bathroom just outside the door. The booking process was pleasant, efficient, and professional. Communication with the venue representative, and we dealt only with one delightful person, was always quick and friendly. The venue includes tables and chairs, and a complete kitchen for your caterer. For modest additional charges, you can run the gorgeous fireplaces. Up to four outdoor heaters are also available for additional charges. The venue provides a very pleasant and helpful person to patrol the grounds during your event, keeping the general public out. There is always someone present to deal with any issues that may come up on the day of your event. On our special day, everything was perfect. Part of the rental includes a reasonable deposit to cover the unlikely event of any damage to the venue. Our deposit was refunded, with expected deductions for the fireplaces, and the heaters we requested, the very next work day after our event. I didn’t have to follow up with them, except to offer my profuse appreciation. The Grove Redfield Estate offers you lists of vendors for every facet of your wedding. These references are invaluable. From those lists, we assembled a dream team of caterer, florist, baker, and photographer. They had all worked together before at the venue, and everything was harmonious on the big day. The value of these relationships can not be overstated. When you are planning your wedding, and you are looking for vendors, it is amazing to have a venue provide you a list of choices that have already proven themselves, and that know the venue. When we received our photos, the venue proved to be the perfect setting and backdrop for us and our guests. I wholeheartedly, and enthusiastically recommend The Grove Redfield Estate for your own very special wedding.” – Shamus T
